We’re taking a month to rest

Notice: Muslim Women For will be closed Monday, August 16 though Monday, September 20. We will resume operations on Monday, September 20th. 

As many of you know, July is the month that this organization was founded. For the last 5 years, our staff has been working non-stop. We have decided to take this month to honor ourselves, our bodies, our beliefs and ways of being, and this includes balancing our work and our home to the best advantage of both. We are not in a “business as usual” space and hope to continue moving at a pace that is both values aligned and fosters a culture of care. We have provided some resources of rest, healing justice and other content below.

If you need to reach us during this time, please send an email to muslimwomenfor@gmail.com with “URGENT” in the subject line and someone will get back to you within 24 hours. However, if it is not urgent, please expect a reply sometime after September 20, 2021. 

Note: This leave will not affect the final session of the “Sex, Spirituality and Reproductive Health” summer series. It is happening on August 26 as planned. Please register here. Also, we will still publish art and written materials from our “call for artists” request but please note that these will be automated.
